Why should you get verified on an app you want to use for cross-border payments? You have been asked to prove your identity countless times before you get accepted. Besides enrolling in universities, opening bank accounts, or proving eligibility to drive, most online retailers or payment platforms request that you verify your identity. 

Pay4Me App is not an exception to using digital identity verification to increase fraud detection and improve security. In addition, the brand is complying with anti-fraud regulations like Know Your Customer (KYC) and Anti-Money Laundering (AML).

Fast-forward; here is how you can get verified in minutes with the Pay4Me App:

When you download the Pay4Me App from Google or the Apple Store, you come to this page below

You are not verified at this stage. You need to upload a photo of your ID for verification.  


Tips for Taking an Appropriate Picture

Original ID, Not a Copy: You must use the original ID for verification purposes and not a scanned copy or a photo of a photo. 

Clear and Legible Photo: Take the photo on a solid background to ensure clarity. The app cannot verify you if it detects any blurriness. All fields on your ID must be easily readable.

Check Expiry Date: We cannot verify an expired. In addition,  we are only able to accept unexpired government-issued IDs. 

Include Full ID in the Photo: We may not verify you if you don't take the appropriate picture. Make sure all four corners of the ID are captured in your photo. Focus on capturing all the essential information.

Name Matching: If you have a mismatched name, we won't be able to verify your identity. The name on your ID must match the name you provided on your application.

Note: If you need to update the name you applied with, don't hesitate to contact our support team.
